    Giancarlo Volpe, the producer of GL:TAS, had a appropriate response on his tumblr: http://giancarlovolpe.tumblr.com/pos...is-my-official

    Are they * kidding me?

    I've been dealing with Real Life gunk and it just hit me a few minutes ago that I totally forgot it was Saturday and thus missed the CN DC block. Immediately came here to ask if Wally had been in the latest episode and instead I find all these threads on the show being cancelled. ! ! !

    Now it is just on hiatus?

    Now I am glad I didn't actually miss anything, but...

    Seriously????! After just two episodes????!

    Has some sort of insanity virus hit the TV branch of DC or Cartoon Network because it sure looks that way.

    [EDIT] Okay, so it's definitely Cartoon Network that has flipped its wig and gone senile upon reaching its ripe old age.

    At least I still have Doctor Who.

    Oh....wait....hiatus.

    Damn, dirty word.

    I just realized something really idiotic/ironic, if the January return date for DC Nations on Cartoon Network occurs after January 22, episode 10 of Young Justice will have already been released on DVD by then (if Warner Home Video keeps its initial released date unchanged): http://www.worldsfinestonline.com/20...n-dvd-release/

    Wait, are you blaming the MLP show or commiserating how Cartoon Network treats its licensed shows worse than The Hub does its shows?

    Ya know, Cartoon Network screwing over DC cartoons dates at least as far back as the Justice League cartoon. DC's owned by freakin' time warner, so why haven't they wised up and put some damn clause in their contracts to prevent this?

    Ah, so they fear the Ponies. As well they should...

    Or is it just that Cartoon Network has come to fear success and will destroy anything successful while keeping garbage like Destroy Build Destroy and Dude What Would Happen on the air far longer than they deserve. By which I mean longer than than minus one episode.

    Hell, they screwed over Samurai Jack, Megas XLR, Justice League, etc.

    I am really starting to DESPISE Cartoon Network's decision making. They are always cancelling good programming (i.e. Sym Bionic Titans, ThunderCats and Samurai Jack) and replacing it with foolishness like The Annoying Orange and The Problem Solverz. However, it's a blessing to know that DC Nation isn't actually cancelled though. BTW I can't help but lol at the 'fear the ponies' statement.
